Feel Good Movies

I luv watching movies. Last night I watched 7 Pounds with Will Smith.
It was great movie, loved the acting, and the overall story.
After watching it, it made me reflect deeply regarding life.
Don't want to spoil it for anyone who hasn't seen it, so I'll say no more.

What are your favorite movies that have provoked deep emotions, caused you to react differently, and made you see things in a different light?

7 pounds had me in tears. i wanted to just cry, but i felt bad for the other people in the theater so it was one of those really unfulfilling cries, where you want to bawl but you have to force yourself to quietly let the tears roll and not sniffle too loud. i didn't have that same courtesy when i saw the passion of the christ though. the only times i've cried that hard were because of a death or a breakup.

i thought august rush was one of those feel good movies. that kid could not have been any more adorable, and the sweet look on his face when he starts discovering music is just so endearing, i wanted to reach right into the tv and give him a hug!

I wish I could remember the name, but it was a Lifetime TrueStory movie about this young boy from a really religious family and town and he was gay. He was struggling with his sexuality and religion. Unfortunately he killed himself and his mom blamed herself because she turned her back on him. She tried to pray him straight ( no joke, she really did this). When it didn't work she told her son that he wasn't praying hard enough. Sad but really good.

Prayers For Bobby is the name of the movie. I also teared up something cazy while watching
The Imitation of Life ( Loves me some Lana Turner)
The Other Sister
Steel Magnolias
The Last King oF Scotland
Thelma and Louise
Fried Green Tomatoes
The Color Purple
Lady SIngs the Blues
I could go on, but there's not enough time or space. LOL

Amelie is my ultimate feel good movie. It always puts a smile on my face. It's just lovely.

The Shawshank Redemption is in this category for me as well. Even though it has many dark moments, ultimately it is full of hope.
